The Twilight Zone reboot cancelled
The show was hosted, narrated and produced by director Jordan Peele.
Sci-fi/horror anthology series The Twilight Zone will not return for a third season.
A statement issued by the reps of its narrator Jordan Peele and executive producer Simon Kinberg suggests that the two mutually decided it was time for the show to come to an end.
"We greatly enjoyed our time working on The Twilight Zone - particularly when the real world around us often felt more and more like another dimension. We cherished the opportunity to collaborate with so many talented writers, actors and crewmembers.”
“After 20 unique episodes, we have told the stories that we wanted to tell, and CBS All Access was gracious in their understanding of our decision. It was an honour and a privilege to bring audiences a modern reimagining of Rod Serling's iconic creation."
This announcement also comes as CBS All Access, the US-only streaming service that the show was developed for, is planning to rebrand itself as Paramount+
The Twilight Zone served as a reboot of the iconic series of the same name which originally ran for 4 seasons from 1959 to 1964.
Adam Scott, Kumail Nanjiani, The Walking Dead’s Steven Yeun, Jimmi Simpson, Chris O’Dowd, Topher Grace, Gillian Jacobs and American Horror Story’s Taissa Farmiga all star.
It contained plenty of original stories as well as reimaginings of classics like Nightmare at 20,000 Feet and To Serve Man.
All 20 episodes of The Twilight Zone are available to stream on NOW TV.
